Hello again sorcerer2007-ga,
I have found a distributor who carries this line of terra cotta
antique reproductions. They have multiple locations in the US,
including one in Los Angeles.
Pacific Design Center

Los Angeles, CA 90069
Urns and Vases
-- Valentina (same as Round Basket Urn at Roger?s Gardens)
-- Bacchus Urn
-- Buckingham Urn and Pedestal
-- Ram?s Head Urn and Pedestal
-- Leo Vase (not shown on Roger?s Gardens site)
(Note: Big Stanley with Pedestal and Blashfield Urn not offered on
As I said in my clarification request, I believe that these pieces are
reproductions of English designs. The names (Blashfield, Buckingham,
Stanley) indicated English origins and my search results confirm this.
Doing an image search for Blashfield urns found urns that are very
similar to some of the ones in the Roger?s Gardens collection.
The links to designjournalmag.com showed the exact same urns as the
ones you?re looking for and led me to finding Greystone.
The other links that showed Blashfield, Buckingham, Stanley, Bacchus
and Ram?s Head urns helped me confirm that the designs originated in
England. The three links below kept coming up and helped me to find
additional sources for garden ornaments that look like the models for
the Roger?s Gardens urns. They also led me to J. M. Blashfield who
developed an artificial stone or terra cotta that he used for his
garden ornaments. These have become quite valuable. The English
sources I found offer antiques as well as reproductions.
I also found some additional European and American manufacturers of
terra cotta garden ornaments in my quest to try to find the Belgian
maker of the products you?re looking for. I?m listing them in case you
might be interested in alternative product offering.
I trust that the links I?ve found will be useful. Please don?t
hesitate to ask for further clarification if any of the material I?ve
found is lacking.
Wishing you well for your project.

ENGLISH ANTIQUES AND REPRODUCTIONS
Art in the Garden
If carved marble is out of your price range, 19th-century stoneware is
rising in value and popularity, but still available at reasonable
prices. John Marriott Blashfield specialised in making artificial
stoneware. His first manufactory was in Millwall, and his showroom in
the Edgware Road, London, but he later moved to Stamford, Lincolnshire
to be near the clay beds. His 'Terra Cotta' was used in the
architecture of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. His wares are often
clearly stamped 'JM Blashfield' or 'Blashfield Patent Pottery', and
prime specimens of planters and troughs go for around the £2,000 mark
at auction. A 19th-century Blashfield urn is offered by Jardinique, a
specialist dealer in Hampshire, for £2,900.
John Marriott Blashfield [Architectural terracotta and garden ornament]
John Marriott Blashfield began experimenting with terracotta in 1848
and was inspired to continue by the exhibits he saw at the Great
Exhibition in 1851 at the Crystal Palace, London. The Art Journal of
1856 stated that Blashfield "has carried this art [terracotta] beyond
his competitors, and has achieved much that gives it the high
character it may be made universally to assume." Architectural
terracotta enjoyed a revival in interest in this period and Blashfield
became one of its leading producers from the 1850s until his death in
1882, exporting to India, New Zealand and Australia.
